something it's not the recession. maybe half of it is. >> yes. i think obama bought this election through welfare spending. look, if you look at numbers we're spending so much money on welfare and federal spending increased by p 2%. problem is that this gets people on their feet. >> do you agree. >> yes. it's a stroong magnet. >> do you agree with that? >> i agree that that is one factor but that is over simplification plix of what happened. it does not tyke a rocket scientist to see you don't get the voft people you that insult and that you don't support issues that are important to them. that is what happens. >> bill: what about food stamp issue? it's an exploding entitlement. 00,000. the ununemployment rate going down there. >> we're in a bad economy. >> nothing warranting this. >> 47 million people? what is going on. >> people need help. and yes. obama could have done better with the economy. that is what happens in situations like this. i don't think that that is the factor and why single women voted for obama. >> thank you very much. we come back, bernie goldberg on the david petrae
of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true i guess it does. they have managed to bury the benghazi story. the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel any obligation to bring it up. if they put that past the election and they put this petraeus thing past the election. this second term is going to be pretty ugly people not going to go away. >> it won't be the bad guys some indication that his whatever you want to call her, his friend may have made a speech and given away some secret information that she may or may not have gotten. >> bill: only thing that could happen is if holder gets dragged into this because he may because he obviously overseas the fbi and he knew what was going on and if he see that he bury it and got fast and furious on his resume. >> you can bury certain things for only a certain amount of time. and second terms are not kind to second term presidents. i think coupled with the stagnant econom
, maybe half of it is. >> yeah. >> bill: what's happening. >> obama bought this election through welfare spending. look, if you look at the numbers, we are spending so much money on welfare and federal spending has increased for welfare by 32%. this is supposed to get people on their feet. >> bill: you agree with knee that was a very very strong magnet. >> this is a way of life. >> bill: do you agree with that? >> i agree that that's one factor. but that's an oversimplyification of what happened. bill, it does not take a rocket scientist to see that you don't get the vote of people that you insult and the people that you don't support issues that are important to them. that's what happened in this election. >> bill: food stamp issue is an exploding entitlement. 400,000 from july to august. and the unemployment rate was actually going down in the process there. i mean, what's going on? >> we're in a bad economy. we're in a bad economy. no one is going to dispute that. >> bill: it's bad but it's not. you know, nothing that would warrant this kind of a -- 47 million people? what's going on?

obama and democrats won that election. really president obama won it big. it's relevant in this case largely because he ran on an explicit agenda of having tax rates for the wealthy go back up. that's what this negotiation largely, not exclusively, but largely is all about. so president obama's coming to the table saying, hey, republicans we didn't reach an agreement with the super committee. we didn't reach an agreement with the biden talks. we didn't reach agreement largely with debt limit fights from those years ago. i just won. i ran on that. so this is my hard position. another thing has changed in addition to the election. it is the fiscal cliff that you mentioned in the set-up there. we are now much closer to the deadline of those bush era tax cuts going up. and the leverage has now changed. if there is no agreement at all by december 31, all of those rates go up. that fundamentally changes the debate over who can vote for a tax increase and when. one of the kujals being put forward by a lot of liberals on the hill -- there's a little bit of good cop bad cop going on. you hear
in this election. they made a big gamble and came up empty handed. in 2011 president obama was cutting deals with john boehner on the golf course. it was very favorable for the republicans. the president agreed to more than a trillion dollars in cuts, benefit reductions of social security, raising the medicare eligibility age and actually lowering tax rates on the wealthiest americans. now in the end, republicans, what do they do? they rejected the deal. they wanted more and the way to get it was to beat the president of the united states in november. the president fought back almost a year ago. he announced the message of the reelection campaign. the same place where teddy roosevelt gave birth to progressivism. >> we have to ask ourselves, do we want to make the investments we need in things like education and research and high-tech manufacturing, all those things that help make us an economic super power, or do we want to keep in place the tax breaks for the the wealthiest americans in our country? because we can't afford to do both. that's not politics. that's just math. >> this message w
precedence under the obama administration and both post election surprises all come on the heels of benghazi. remember, when the president had his way that truth would still be hidden as well and we would all still be blaming the death of four americans on a youtube movie trailer. it's time to lift the veil of secrecy. joining me now to do just that is ronald kessler. and utah congressman jason chaffetz is with us. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> what do you make of it? >> this administration is withholding information from the american people and they are engaged in a concerted effort to mislead the world and mislead the american people. >> to what extent do you think this was connect today benghazi? why now? he was supposed to testify this week. >> it's so suspicious. it's not a coincidence. he is probably the one that knows most about what happened or didn't happen in benghazi. a lot of senators don't believe he was telling the truth before. this begs more questions than it answers. >> ron kessler, you knew october 10th that this had taken place? >> yeah. i was still working on it
if he saw president obama's re-election as a voter mandate to enact his tax plan and it's clear from his response conservatives are running out of material. >> we just had an election. and the house of representatives was elected to keeping taxes low. the president was elected on the >> he said he won not on policy, but because democrats painted romney as a poopy head. desperate times call for desperate measures with the looming fiscal cliff. even bill crystal is calling for a serious call. tonight in our survey, i asked you will republicans in congress finally work for the american people? 28% said yes, so optimistic, 72% of you said no. i hate to see it, but i'm a 72%er tonight. >>> coming up the ceo of papa johns is complaining about the cost of obama care. you might believe just how much money this guy makes. sam stein of "the huffington post" is here with the latest. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do our part for the bu
acts of war that the obama administration worked to keep secret until after the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely, and here's why. way back
of these people going to do on the election night when obama won? now we have seen the fallout. now there is around within the conservative movement directed at fox news saying you sold us a bill of goods and this is what sort of self-imposed ignorance looks like. this will be fascinating to see how it plays out. i have no idea if the republican party will be able to diverse itself from fox news. but they gave misinformation. >> jennifer: i think there is a great encapsulation on this morningio, joe scarborough said he was lied to but the conservative establishment. take a listen to his clip. >> my biggest problem was that i was lied to. i was lied to by the--as david fromm said, from the conservative entertainment establishment, the conservative media establishment. they lied to the donors. they lied to the base. they lied to everyone. >> jennifer: that is pretty condemning. the question is do you think the rational republicans are catching on to fox news propaganda? >> they might have caught on, but there is going to be a tug-of-war. fox news is not going to give up it's authority

obama's reelection was settled at about 11:15 p.m. eastern last tuesday, the election overall is still underway in some parts of the country, including one place where it appears to have mostly just broken down with a bunch of federal level races still undecided. and the state in question is not florida for once. important updates coming up there including what may be a deconcession by a democrat who previously thought he had lost in a big important u.s. senate race. that's all ahead. >>> but we have to begin with breaking news out of washington. "the washington post" is reporting tonight that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for defense or any other post, there will be an
chose mitt romney over president obama during this election season. they made their choice early and loudly and publicly and put a ton of money behind mr. romney. it did not work. their guy did not win. president obama got reelected any way. there presumably is some sort of reckoning from that. if not a reckoning, at least a turn of the page. the white house is signaling that the president wants to enlist business leaders in his effort to end bush tax cuts for those earning more than $250,000. an effort they might get something in return for. the white house characterizing their plans as a deal that would help bring down the deficit, but without destroying the economic recovery and the middle class along with it. should not come as a surprise that president obama is pushing hard on ending the bush tax cuts for income over $250,000. that's probably been the president's most consistent, most repeated promise on policy. here's what he said about the bush tax cuts on high income right as he was agreeing to extend the tax cuts back in 2010. >> i'm as opposed to the high end tax cuts t
